If you are trying to get rid of head lice at home you must believe that any attempt at successful Home Head Lice Treatment is NOT likely to be possible without a good quality / professional grade stainless steel comb. Even if you choose not to buy a proven and effective treatment formula, you will still need a good comb! Although it IS possible to get rid of these pesky critters by manual wet combing only, you will significantly increase your effective treatment success by using a proven home head lice treatment formula. Nit Free Terminator is the ONLY comb that I use as a professional Lice Removal consultant.
IF you have trouble finding the terminator comb or the licemeister, you can visit here to get one.
There is only ONE other comb that I have tested successfully and rightfully so – it is endorsed by the National Pediculosis Association. This one is called the LiceMeister Comb.
It is more readily available to Canadian families quite often at local drug stores. It uses a tough molded plastic handle with precision stainless steel teeth carefully spaced for the most effective use with fine, medium or coarse hair. Visit this link to find the comb (ALL Canada, + some US areas).
Both combs are better used with wet hair. Adding hair conditioner to the process will aid in removing tangles and allow the comb to glide through the hair more easily.
NOTE: It is absolutely possible to get rid of head lice through careful screening and combing ONLY. The use of any safe treatment formula is simply a way to increase your success and speed up the process. You don’t have to take my word for it – visit the site that is the National recognized authority on the subject of Head Lice.
